Sarah and Blake captured our hearts from the moment we first met them, and it wasn’t just because of their Boxer Murphy (he is ADORABLE though). No, it was because of how they would look at each other. The gleam in their eyes and the way they both seemed to sparkle, it’s this kind of tangible love between the couple’s we get to work with that made us fall in love with documenting love.
Given they got engaged on Christmas Day, we decided on doing a romantic holiday-themed speakeasy engagement session. One of our local speakeasies had just decorated for the holidays and were kind enough to let us steal the space for a bit after hours, and that’s where the magic started.
We love telling candid love stories. Don’t get us wrong, we’ll find the perfect spots, place our couples in gorgeous light, give some posing tips, yada yada yada… but the real magic happens when our couples are their unique selves. Sometimes we have to help people relax, but Sarah and Blake were so comfortable with each other and in the space that the story just unfolded naturally.
We want to give another big shoutout to Tavern on George for letting us use their Speakeasy space and wish all the best to Sarah and Blake!
